CONSULTATION WITH PRINCIPAL, VICE PRINCIPALS, DEANS, SUPERVISORS and HEADS of DEPARTMENTS as well as COUNSELLORS and CHAPLAIN

The Principal, and other members of staff are always glad to meet and consult with parents and guardians on matters concerning their son/ward. A prior appointment before the visit will more readily ensure that the parents/guardians meet with members of staff. Therefore appointments by letter, phone or fax are strongly recommended.
